Wakey Wheeled Cats Public Debut

Picture of member of Wakey Wheeled Cats roller derby team at the Great Yorkshire Showdown.

They say its not the winning but the taking part, well this week that is especially true for the members of the Wakey Wheeled Cats flat track roller derby team. This week they took part in the Great Yorkshire Showdown at Huddersfield and it was their public debut at the sport.

There is a camaraderie in roller derby that is missing today in many sports, win or lose you will see girls from different teams hugging each other after a bout. I may be wrong but I think the Wakefield team are the newest here in the North of England and it was good to see them in action here in Huddersfield.

At the end of the various bouts I saw this member of the Wakey Wheeled Cats their No 30, sat on the floor amongst the teams luggage and I could not resist this photo. Again not up to my usual standards the light was very yellow.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
